Honestly, for it to be anything but the best VR experience at home would be a shock.
But as I look at the Index, I think, “Why would I want this when I have the Quest and wireless VR.” Yes, I realize the Quest doesn’t have the power of the Index. But that doesn’t matter. Now that I have that freedom of wireless VR, I don’t want to go back to seated VR.
It’s akin to how I’d like just about every video game on the Switch. Nintendo’s hybrid console works great in its dock for the TV, but I find I’d rather play it as a portable, either on the couch, in my reading chair, or in bed. My PC and PS4 have far more power, but I enjoy the freedom of playing away from my TV.
And that’s how I feel about the Quest when it comes to VR. And I doubt the Index, despite being a fantastic piece of tech, will change that.
